Dr. Baruch was a Civil War physician for the Confederacy who was captured twice in battle. He was the first surgeon to successfully operate on a ruptured appendix. In 1880 he moved to New York City, where he encouraged and promoted the use of hydrotherapy to treat and prevent disease by bathing. He built the Rivington Street Public Bath-house on the lower east side of New York so that indigent immigrants could have a clean place to bathe. He also designed the baths at Saratoga Springs, New York. He was the father of four children, including the financier and Presidential adviser, Bernard M. Baruch.
